The South Florida Bulls got their season going in the right direction on Saturday night when they took care of the Chattanooga Mocs 34-13 at Raymond James Stadium.
South Florida was able to move the ball at will via the aerial attack. B.J. Daniels threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns en route to the rout. On the other side of things, the Bulls pass defense was extremely stingy, allowing just 102 yards between both Hocs quarterbacks, Jacob Huesman and Terrell Robinson.
The game was blown wide open in the second quarter on a pair of touchdown tosses courtesy of Daniels. The first was an 18-yard beauty to Derrick Hopkins before a long 38-yard hookup with Terrence Mitchell to make it 21-3 South Florida.
The two big differences (outside of the passing attacks) were penalties and 3rd down conversions. The Bulls were only flagged twice compared to 10 times for Chattanooga. Both teams faced 15 3rd downs with the Hocs converting just two while South Florida was dominant, getting a fresh set of downs nine times.
